There’s going to be a new Star Wars film, Disney CEO confirmed on Tuesday. No, not Episode VII or even subsequent episodes following that. A new new film, a standalone, that will focus on Star Wars characters, though it’s unclear at this point which one(s).
In an interview with CNBC, Bob Iger said a few standalone films are indeed in the works, and that Larry Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are both involved. Rumors have swirled that a possible film could focus on the mystique of Yoda, which would certainly please quite a few fans of the beloved character. As long as we stay as far away from Jar Jar Binks as possible.
